Feature: Holger Geschwindner - Dr. Dirkenstein

Tuesday, June 13th, 2006

Dirk Nowitzki. He’s a freak of nature (in a good way) - a monster. That’s why many teams are looking out for the next Dirk to come out of Europe. His accuracy from anywhere on the floor and especially beyond the arc coupled with his size and rebounding ability makes him a matchup nightmare […]

Walker Wiggle

Thursday, June 8th, 2006

Out of boredom I decided to search for some interesting youtube videos. Then out of curiosity I searched for the Walker Wiggle. It’s the famous wiggle Antoine Walker is known for, especially back during his Celtic days. It’s really amusing to see someone do it on the court. Here’s Walker doing it as a member […]

Eric Musselman is New Kings Coach

Saturday, June 3rd, 2006

First of all, I’m still in a bit of disagreement with the decision to fire long time coach Rick Adelman. He’s a coach that left a lasting mark on the Kings franchise as the best coach they ever had so far. His resume speaks for itself, with trips to the NBA finals in with the […]

No To Big Bulky Big Men?

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

So I came across this article written by Mark Wise called “It Took Two Big Men To Go Small” which was featured in the NBA website. It had interesting insights about how Don Nelson and Mike D’Antoni started a change about how the game was played - that the game no longer relies on […]

Dwayne Wade. The Imelda Marcos of the NBA

Saturday, May 13th, 2006

No he’s not a famous spouse of a Philippine dictator. Well for those who don’t know Imelda Marcos, the wife of the long deceased Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos, has a huge collection of shoes. Apparently Dwayne Wade loves to collect shoes too, Air Jordans and all. He has 1,000 pairs of shoes!
This piece of news […]

After Eight Seasons, Kings Part With Coach Adelman

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

So just shortly after I wrote about how the Kings needed to keep Coach Rick Adelman he gets fired. After 8 seasons with the Kings, Adelman has established himself as the best coach the franchise has ever had. That’s big shoes to fill for his successor and I mean really big shoes. While I disagree […]

Artest wants Adelman and Wells back, even if it means…

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

Artest insists he would play for free next season if it guaranteed the Kings would keep Bonzi Wells and coach Rick Adelman.
Wells, the Kings’ leading scorer in their first-round series, is a free agent on July1.
Adelman is in the final year of his contract, too, and Kings owners Joe and Gavin Maloof have given no […]

Lebron Second in MVP Votes

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

So we know that Steve Nash won the MVP trophy this year, his 2nd in a row. What’s interesting though is to look at the ranking of the guys who didn’t make it. Maybe it’s not much of a big deal but I figure this news is going to make all ye Kobe fans mad. […]

Nuggets To Part With GM Kiki Vandeweghe

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

So the Nuggets are parting ways with GM Kiki Vandeweghe. I’m not exactly sure what to think about this. On one hand, why would you want to let go of the GM responsible for giving new life to a franchise that’s been a perennial lottery bound team before his arrival. The Nuggets’ acquisitions of Marcus […]
